Potentially Deadly New Flu

Twenty-two students and three teachers in New Zealand, who returned from a three-week-long language trip to Mexico, may have been infected with the swine flu virus, officials said Sunday.

The suspected infections in New Zealand follow reports that a deadly new strain of the virus cropped up more places in the United States and Mexico Saturday.

The World Health Organization calls this "a public health emergency of international concern."

We're covering all the angles this morning in the CNN Newsroom, with live reports from CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta in Atlanta, Susan Canidotti in New York and Ted Rowlands in Mexico City.
